What is Orthopedic Physical Therapy?

Orthopedic physical therapy and rehabilitation encompasses a wide range of injuries and problems involving joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones and peripheral nerves. Physical therapists are experts in human movement and specialize in treating movement dysfunctions, usually related to pain or injury. We utilize the latest, cutting-edge therapeutic techniques to relieve pain and restore function. We go beyond the scope of your specific injury and take your goals to heart - whether it's getting back to sports, returning to work, or simply walking without pain.

Your physical therapy treatment for your orthopedic injury will include a wide variety of interventions dependent on your individual needs. The physical therapists at C.O.R.E. specialize in hands-on manual therapy. In addition to manual therapy techniques, you may receive modalities such as ultrasound, electrical stimulation, or hot/cold packs. A home exercise program will be prescribed that serves as an adjunct to manual therapy techniques. Additional instruction in posture, ergonomics, body mechanics and sport specific movement re-education to prevent recurrence of pain may also be a part of your treatment plan. Ultimately, you will receive a customized plan of care tailored to your specific needs.
